Coach Bruce Boudreau was furious after Thursday's 1-0 loss to Columbus and his rage centered around a goal by Erik Haula that was disallowed in the second period.
"The puck wasn't kicked at the net," Boudreau said. "He was trying to kick it up to his skate because it was going five feet wide. And they put it in their own net. So I don't see how in Toronto that they're calling it unless it's a guy they just pulled in off the street that hasn't seen hockey before." According to Rule 49.2, "a goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who kicks a puck that deflects into the net off any player..." However, Haula was told by the official that if the puck went off William Karlsson's stick and not his body then it would have been a goal. Mar 3 - 10:56 AM
